    Moviegoers have long since relied on film ratings to make an informed decision as to what subject matter they want to subject themselves to. But moviegoers will now have a much harder time deciphering what their eyes will see at the movies.

    We sat down with Trisha Tonkinson from the Motion Picture Association of America (MPPA) to get the inside scoop.

    Spaghetti Thumbs: Is it true the MPAA is going to get rid of movie ratings?

    Trisha: First, I must correct you and let you know that we are no longer the Motion Picture Association of America. We are now just the Motion Picture Association, we felt that in today’s cultural climate it was more appropriate to drop America from our name — I mean you get that right — we don’t want that tie to history and all that. But yes, you heard correct, we are no longer going to rate movies the way we used to.

    Spaghetti Thumbs: So why the sudden change?

    Trisha: People don’t care to make an informed decision as to what they watch — people today will view anything and parents will let their child watch whatever they want to watch themselves. We felt that ratings were no longer useful. Also, rating are not all inclusive. We felt that the ratings established by previous generations just don’t apply to today. Ratings exclude certain groups from feeling that watching certain movies is not appropriate.

    Spaghetti Thumbs: Won’t this change put everyone at the MPAA — sorry that was rude — I mean the MPA. Won’t this change put everyone at the MPA out of a job.

    Trisha: Thank you for the question. I know what you must think, that with no more ratings we wouldn’t have any work to do, but in fact the exact opposite is true. We will have more work applying the same rating to all movies. In fact we have received a billon dollar grant from the Federal Government to insure that we help tell people what is moral and well that we tell them that everything is morally acceptable. It’s a job we take very seriously, it is much harder to destroy American values than you think.

    Spaghetti Thumbs: What is the new rating?

    Trisha: I’m glad you asked. Our new all inclusive rating is NGN, which stands for No Guidance Needed.

    We would like to thank Trisha for allowing us to sit down with her. The new NGN rating is set to be applied to all movies starting next month. Cable TV and video game makers are set to follow in the MPA’s foot steps and apply the NGN rating.
